XF vs C300: Performance Specs

You can expect a punchy performance from the 2020 XF and the 2020 C300. Both cars come standard with 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engines that crank out roughly 250 horsepower. Even more power is available when you choose from a selection of available engines.

The driving dynamics of these two brands are legendary, but the Jaguar XF scores a win with the JaguarDrive Control™ system that the Mercedes-Benz 300 lacks. It lets you select from Normal, Eco, Dynamic, and Rain/Ice/Snow driving modes to customize your drive to match your mood and road conditions.

Interior Features: Cabin & Cargo Space

The Jaguar XF and the Mercedes-Benz C300 may both be luxury cars, but they have one key difference: size. The latter is a compact car, while the former is a midsize car. When cabin and cargo space come into play, the larger Jaguar has a major advantage.

With just 12.6 cubic feet in the trunk, the C300 has room for groceries or golf clubs but little else. You can find much more freedom in the XF that offers 19.1 cubic feet of space. Stow your family's vacation gear, from carry-on to full-size luggage, in the Jaguar.

Need even more cargo space? Only the XF has a hatchback variant called the XF Sportbrake. With the unique hatch configuration, you'll find 31.7 cubic feet behind the rear seats and a cavernous 69.7 cubic feet with the rear seatbacks folded!

Staying Connected with Car Technology

There's no doubt about it: The 2020 XF and the C300 are leaders when it comes to in-car connectivity. These rides feature advanced infotainment systems with wide Touchscreens. The InControl® Touch Pro™ system in the Jaguar and its equivalent in the Mercedes-Benz can keep you connected wherever you go.

Both offer navigation and smartphone integration. With features like InControl® Apps™, you can pair up your iPhone or Android device with your vehicle's Touchscreen. Both vehicles have available fully digital instrument panels, too: Customize them to show the information you need most.

For those sweltering Louisiana summers, these luxury sedans make dual-zone automatic climate control standard. However, only the XF has Four-Zone Climate Control available. Rear-seat passengers will get their own sets of temperature controls!

Should I Choose the Jaguar XF or Mercedes-Benz C300?

We want New Orleans and Metairie drivers to leave this page with a better understanding of these luxury cars. Now that you've read our comparison, would you rather have the 2020 Jaguar XF or the Mercedes-Benz C300?
